Trying the Left

Through this post I learned a lot, not only about how to do calligraphy left handed, but just how many people I know who are left handed and WANT to learn how to do calligraphy. This week I decided to try it for myself. I rotated my work surface so my writing direction was top-down […]

NE New York Girl Scouts Demo 2019

Date: 8 June 2019Lesson: Gothic Blackletter This was a very free-form thing. Our scribes that participated were on Cobblestone way, which was the Arts & Sciences (A&S) Petting Zoo. We had all kinds of A&S examples of how things were done and most of the exhibits had something hands-on for the girls to try. In […]

K&Q Archery Champions 2019

King’s Archery Champion: My first set of champions scrolls! I spent a month trying to figure out just what to do for these. I couldn’t decide between this style or something with more illumination. Due to several life events happening, this style won out. Given everything that’s been going on, I’m very happy with how […]

Amia Turner - OSC

I was very happy to get a message from Fiona, letting me know that my apprentice sibling Amia was getting her Silver Crescent. I fired off a quick e-mail to the Tiger Signet (keeper of the scroll assignments) to put my name on the list for it, once the assignment was created. The words were […]

Fearghus O'Conchobhair - OSW

Wait, the tags include Event Expedient AND Backlog.  How can you have an Event Expedient BACKLOG scroll?!  Simple, you attend The Great Quintavian Iron Scribe competition hosted by Shire of Quintavia in Berlin, MA.  While there, after the competitors have started,  sign up for a Backlog Scroll and get started.  Do your best to finish […]

Matija Potocnik - OSR

While I’m happy to do another scroll for Matija, this one came with mixed emotions.  Not towards him, but to a student sibling.  a week or so ago, I turned down the opportunity to do a scroll for her as I didn’t think I would have time before investiture.  The assignment came in 2 weeks […]

Order of the Maunche

To say that today was an exciting and busy day, would be an understatement.  Not only were my Lovely wife and I Invested as Baron and Baroness of Concordia of the Snows, but shortly thereafter, I was called up in front of their Majusties.   Around the time of the server crash, I thought something […]

Robert Tytes - Order of the Golden Rapier

This was my first Gold level award that was actually assigned!  The other’s I’ve done, I was requested, but the Signit didn’t reach out to me initially.  So this is kind of a big deal for me. I’ve been wanting to do another German style scroll for a while now.  As luck would have it, […]

So, I found out the hard way that I didn’t have a current snapshot of the server this site is hosted on after we had a power outage.  I lost about 3 months of various posts.   I’ll be re-posting the scrolls, but other posts are lost.  So please bare with me as I try […]

Auron MacInstalker - Award of Arms

I love doing scrolls for friends, and getting a bunch of friends toghether makes it all the better!  Lorita had approached me for the calligraphy over EK 50.  We then went over to Aislinn for wording ideas as she’d submitted the request.  While hashing out ideas, Aislinn idelly mumbled a “There was once a Laird […]
